I tried this last night on my Amiga2000. Doesn't quite work yet...

The ramdisk option for Amiga is "ramdisk=20000", and you have to type it
right as well... I also use the debian-installer/framebuffer option, not
sure if that is necessary.

Installation then starts, but it fails to detect my network card, it is an
ariadne2 and I know it works. It is not built into the kernel, but it is a
module in the kernel-image, some time ago the name changed from ariadne2 to
zorro8390. I had a look in /lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel, but it is empty? Can
I load the module manually somehow (where are the modules hiding?) or do I
have to build a kernel-image where the NICs are compiled in? The installer
has been loading lots of ide modules, so there must be modules somewhere.
